Lives we have touched

ACE is the driving force behind Singapore’s vibrant innovation and entrepreneurship scene.
But don’t take our word for it, let’s see what others have to say!

BACECAMP does a wonderful job of preparing start-ups in critical fields (e.g. valuation, sales, legal, IP, etc.) during their infancy stage to set them on the right track. Incredibly comprehensive and the best basecamp I've attended so far!

Surendra Shenoy
CEO & Co-founder / Nile

Well-rounded introduction to the myriad of topics a founder needs to know when starting a business. Unfortunately this season can't be conducted in-person, if not I believe there could be more learnings between the participants.

Choo Wee Chyn
Co-founder / Attribuild

BACECAMP was a comprehensive crash-course of what to expect when starting up. I recommend all aspiring entrepreneurs, young or old, to attend the programme.


As an early stage start up, BACECAMP help me to understand the key subjects that would really be useful in future.

Co-founder / Hale Smoothies

Equipping and enabling new startups with invaluable skills

Paul Phang

It is an amazing program which gives insight into various facets when starting a business which are essential for the launch, build and growth stage of a company. The support ecosystem is amazing.

Pushkar N Pradhan

BACECAMP has provided me a fresh lens of how to run my startup, alongside a supportive community. Would recommend to any early-stage founders!

Alexandra Zhang
Co-founder / Factorem

I met great mentors such as Jeffrey Nah and Eric Tan through the BACECamp. They taught me the importance of understanding the market and how to position my company with great clarity.

Co-founder / Wraek

BACECAMP had been a fruitful and enjoyable learning journey. Highly recommended for all budding entrepreneurs who are keen on improving your business.

CEO & Co-founder / Tectech

BACECAMP has been very beneficial to OTECH as it has sharpened my take on the business and the narrative. The many speakers sharing their invaluable experience made me keenly aware of the gaps in my company. It has also provided me with many different options to resolve them.

Lionel Otsuka
Founder / OTECH

BACECamp was fun and engaging all throughout, and the best place to network with like-minded individuals who are on the same journey as you are.

Ryan Chin
Co-founder / Alpha Electrics

This program far exceeds my expectation. Despite the challenge of having this BACECAMP in virtual/remote setting, it has been a very, very positive experience.

Foo Tuan Tong

Let this BACECAMP be the start of your entrepreneurial climb towards success.

Kok Ting Han, Daniel
